no output returned from plugin error

Postby ofadl » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:25 am

Hello everyone

I am having a problem with with the same service for several of my linux servers. I am trying to run a "Memory Usage" on a couple of the linux servers, and have everything set up fine, and when i go onto nagios, i get the orange highlighted box for that same service for all the servers " no output returned from plugin". When i click on the error, i get this as output:

(No output returned from plugin)
NRPE Plugin for Nagios
Copyright (c) 1999-2008 Ethan Galstad (
Version: 2.12
Last Modified: 03-10-2008
License: GPL v2 with exemptions (-l for more info)
SSL/TLS Available: Anonymous DH Mode, OpenSSL 0.9.6 or higher required

Usage: check_nrpe -H <host> [-n] [-u] [-p <port>] [-t <timeout>] [-c <command>] [-a <arglist...>]

-n = Do no use SSL
-u = Make socket timeouts return an UNKNOWN state instead of CRITICAL
<host> = The address of the host running the NRPE daemon
[port] = The port on which the daemon is running (default=5666)
[timeout] = Number of seconds before connection times out (default=10)
[command] = The name of the command that the remote daemon should run
[arglist] = Optional arguments that should be passed to the command. Multiple
arguments should be separated by a space. If provided, this must be
the last option supplied on the command line.
-h,--help Print this short help.
-l,--license Print licensing information.
-n,--no-ssl Do not initial an ssl handshake with the server, talk in plaintext.

This plugin requires that you have the NRPE daemon running on the remote host.
You must also have configured the daemon to associate a specific plugin command
with the [command] option you are specifying here. Upon receipt of the
[command] argument, the NRPE daemon will run the appropriate plugin command and
send the plugin output and return code back to *this* plugin. This allows you
to execute plugins on remote hosts and 'fake' the results to make Nagios think
the plugin is being run locally.

Anyone know how to fix this disaster? Thanks for looking
